The desirable assets of our volunteer helpers in “Korbgemeinschaft” include suitability for teamwork, empathy, tactfulness, respect and mental strength.

Some ideas for activities: To facilitate the collection of funds for Syria through parishes, one could organize flea markets, benefit concerts, or similar events, or one could encourage Syria donations on special occasions, e.g. instead of buying gifts or flowers for birthday celebrations, wedding anniversaries and jubilees or instead of buying wreaths for funerals.
